    I liked the film as much as I thought I would, and there are certainly parts that make you feel for the characters. Although I agree Gabourey did a great job for her first time on film, I was more taken by MoNique's performance. She was as real as it gets, and couldn't have been more believable even to the point of almost making you feel sorry for her at one point. If MoNique does not get an Oscar for this performance I won't be surprised (because the Academy Awards are more about politics than talent), but I will be disappointed.

    The film does seem a bit stereotypical, but the reality is that these things do exist in our society. There is more familial molestation than most of us know about going on right now, in all parts of our society. We can continue to ignore it or call it just a stereotype because this movie was based on a black family, or we can learn from it and try to use it to help prevent these things from happening to our children.
